Norris helps Senators extend winning streak with decisive shootout goal against Devils | CBC Sports

Josh Norris scored the decisive goal in a shootout to lift the Ottawa Senators over the New Jersey Devils 3-2 on Monday night, extending the Senators’ winning streak to three games.

Ottawa’s Tim Stutzle and New Jersey’s Tomas Tatar also scored in the shootout.

The Devils lost their fourth straight in a game that was a makeup contest for a Nov. 16 game postponed because of a COVID-19 outbreak on the Senators. Damon Severson and Nathan Bastian scored for the Devils, and Mackenzie Blackwood made 21 saves.

Drake Batherson and Brady Tkachuk scored for the Senators. Anton Forsberg made 22 saves in regulation and overtime for Ottawa, and stopped Andrea Johnsson in the shootout to secure the win.

Severson’s goal put the home team ahead just 35 seconds into the game when his shot through traffic from the right point found its way past Forsberg. It was Severson’s third goal of the season, with assists going to Jonas Siegenthaler and Jesper Bratt.

Batherson tied the game with his eighth of the season at 7:15 of the second with assists to Thomas Chabot and Tkachuk. But Bastian answered for the Devils just over a minute later at 8:20 to restore the lead with his third goal of the season and his second since rejoining the Devils on waivers from Seattle on Nov. 25. P.K. Subban and Ty Smith assisted.
